These oil paints of hands are created in cooperation with Aphorist Gys Miedema to conceive postcards with an aphorism. I've tried to image the aphorism by means of my hands.

The combination between aphorism and visual art can be very stimulating. Both reflecting a thougt in a one-liner and an image creates a deeper insight statement of life. It focuses a more spatial truth to both.

His sudden death in 2001 was a shock for everyone who knew this mild thinking man and his silently, great wisdom about human life.
